"Knitted Neck Gator"

Feel like knitting for a good cause? Why not knit up a neck warmer for the troops. We just got the free patterns in for the Knitted Neck Gators that will be given as Christmas gifts to the A-Co 1/17th Infantry. The organizer's goal is to send off 1 gator for each solider, thats 155 gators!

The preferred choice for yarn is Cascade's 220 Superwash, which will knit up two Gators. We have free patterns and plenty of the recommended color here at Castaway!
